Fashionistas think Michelle Obama can do no wrong

Is this an appropriate dress to wear to a posthumous Medal of Honor ceremony?

Is this an appropriate dress to wear to a posthumous Medal of Honor ceremony?

President Obama and The Most Glamorous First Lady Ever attended a Medal of Honor ceremony for U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti who was killed in Afghanistan in June 2006.

Mrs. O showed up in a floral frock with a bold, red rose print, accessorized with green kitten heels and chandelier earrings.

Some critics said her attire was more appropriate for a garden party than a solemn ceremony honoring an American hero, but the Michellistas at a website called disagreed. Oh, did they disagree.

Read on. But be prepared to be either amused or horrified by their blind, over-the-top idol worship.

  • Mrs. O You ROCK! Love love love the dress and the shoes. Mrs O with a body like that you make fashion look like fun.
  • Is it just me, or does our First Lady get more beautiful every day?! 
As far as the dress is concerned, I do love it.
  • I swear this woman is living my life. LOL! I looooooove this couple. They are so in synch with each other on so many levels its crazy. Sigh…someday my prince will come. Anywhoo, love the looks. Its goes great with their intelligence and strong values. I am saying Mr and Mrs O are not just a look.
  • Omigod, that dress is awesome! Honestly, I love that I can’t right away tell it’s flowers, it just looks like bold color. It’s also a really flattering cut for her.
  • No denying how breathtakingly lovely Mrs Obama is. Oh my goodness, she is lovely and yet so down to earth and has her act together. She is the complete package, no question about it – Mr President sir, you are a very lucky man.
  • Mrs. O looks stunning in the floral wrap dress! I absolutely love the print and the choice of shoe color. Mrs. O is so fashion-adventurous. Women of America, take note. Bland and boring is out and color and bold accessories are in. She also looks great at the outdoor market. Don’t we all wish we could look so polished while shopping for produce!
  • She looked crazy beautiful today. Love anything on her with a v-neck. And I also liked her hair with less volume on top. It’s different and looks more youthful on her than the volumized hair.
  • Mrs. O looks even more fabulous than usual here. Full of life, bold color and the fit is exceptional. She looks pretty hot (in a classy way). I also always love it when she does an unexpected pop of color with her shoes. The President is a lucky man (and she is a lucky woman).
  • Michelle is smoking hot in that dress!! I know wot I’ll be wearing this Spring/Summer

Shopping Alert!! Kool-aid shortage reported in various spots around the country and in rare places internationally. It has been reported that certain segments of the population have had an insatiable thirst for the product since last Fall. Evidence of over-indulgence includes excessive watching of the Oprah show, the need to foolishly twitter praise of Dear Leader in teenage crush fashion, and most obviously, the predictable fawning over all things Michelle. Celebrities have been spotted on the watch list, Chris Matthews may be headed to rehab, and entire private schools have had to be quarantined as students have been seen marching in sync and chanting praises to Dear Leader.

The phenomenom has spread via the main stream media and most notably recently on the covers of fashion magazines. The First Lady has been dressed up and made up with the full lipstick over the underbite so often her image is beginning to show up more frequently than her husband’s prime time messages to the nation.

There is no cure for this as brain damage is a prerequisite and cold hard facts do not sway. The result is a wholly inappropriate dress being worn to a solemn occasion is praised as bold and daring instead of being criticized as an insult to the family of a brave soldier. Her insecurity and voracious need to garner the spotlight by wearing this frock is not examined, just her bravery in choosing to defy convention.

If you haven’t had a drink yet, there is still hope for you. Resist, Resist, Resist!

I’m still waiting for the 24 hour all Obama (and Michelle) channel. No, I don’t mean MSNBC. This would be all Obama, all the time. BTW, I like his tie.

Duke Guy, you are right on the mark here. I am thinking a Home Shopping Network format would work here. There is already the Obamachia, a jigsaw puzzle, then the plethora of t-shirts and sweatshirts on the market. I envision Michelle’s wardrobe knock-offs, just her shoes alone can fill a weekend special event sale! Someone is missing an opportunity here. Better get on is soon since the clock is ticking down toward Jan. 2013 when the new administration will take over.

The 24 hour Obama channel would be OWN, but Oprah & her friends are egotistical to not push them out of the way. She’s all about Obama, but she thinks she’s more important, & she might be right.

She should visit Senator Byrd (brain) in the hospital dressed like that. Old Robert would really like that and it would keep her away from real Americans. Of course he and she are racists like the rest of us.

Nice sun dress, it matches the carpet quite nicely. I’m not sure if the blue heels go, though. Doesn’t matter, King Barry and his queen can do no wrong.

Is the education level of the posters as transparent to anyone else? Sounds like some of the students Walter E. Williams was talking about here:

Would she wear that dress to a memorial for her mother?

Good heavens – the picture looks like something right out of an old Groucho Marx movie where the king and queen of some 3rd world kingdom called BootsieTootsiland are just being announced at a gala.

Michelle Obama, looked quite nice, but her hair is too frizzy, and that dress although quite nice was not appropriate for the occasion. She needs some guidance, Fashion, I believe has gone to her head, as everyone praises her, but she has to learn what to wear, to various functions, and not just because an outfit looks good, and we know that she can afford same by all means, but there is a time and place, and Michelle don’t worry you have many, many functions to attend and show off now, which I am sure is the intent. Have fun my dear, while it lasts, everything is only for a time, and now is yours.

Forgot to mention that the shoe-color is definitely off, and try to walk more lady-like, after all that is who you are suppose to be.

Those are not chandelier earrings, and if they were, they would not be suitable for that event, maybe the garden party, which she thought she was attending, why she wore that dress.

The more I look at this photo it appears that from the belt up she is 5’4″ or so. From the belt downd she is 6’8″. Did they screw two bodies together and just mismatch parts??

For fashion sense involving matters of solemnity, most especially involving those who have served their country, Mrs Obama could do well to take a leaf from the fashion book of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Old and frumpy with everything dyed to match? Not likely.

I don’t care much for many of her outfits, but they do beat the pantsuits worn by first ladies for the last 16 years.

The two military guys on the left look like they are trying not to laugh. Obama looks pretty mad himself. Maybe he feels that she out-dressed him. He doesn’t share the spot light well nor does he “play well with others.” They both probably did not realize that the event is not about “them” but Sergeant Monti. What a sad inexperienced couple to be in our White House. No class.

The dress is inappropriate for the function, however the media will try to turn it into the new trend….no class

I think Barrack should have worn the dress and Michelle should have worn the suit.

Are all these people suck ups or stupid. You know she has bigger balls than Barrack because she never stands with her legs together. She looks like she has a dip of snuff in her mouth. This dress is not one to wear to a function as this.

I think it IS time for her to call Rachel Zoe, though.

J. Crew is nice for the casual trips, but she DOES need major designer labels for formal occasions.

She’s the fattest ‘fashion icon’ on the planet. Flat chested with a giant booty, saddlebag hips and a gut that looks like a 7 month pregnancy. She’s Lane Bryant’s cover girl for sure–and GREEN SHOES with a red dress? OMG!!!

Why on earth would she wear those hideously colored shoes with that dress? THEY DO NOT COMPLIMENT ONE ANOTHER!!!! Then it occurred to me…the dog must have chewed up her other more appropriate ones! Are the Obamas completely surrounded by Yes men & women? You know, the same staffers who thought a Pack o’ Hollywood DVDs is just peachy for our closest ally, Britain’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown. How about someone FOR ONCE sticking their neck out and saying, “You know, Mrs. Obama, this is a solemn event and I think your dress is a bit too, oh, I dunno…celebratory?!”

I might get some flak from other regular posters for this, but here goes:

I think Mrs. Obama is an attractive woman with a very nice figure. I like the dress along with the green shoes. I might wear something like that myself in the proper situation, a dinner party perhaps.

The only thing I fault her for is the dress is not appropriate for the somber state function she is attending. Something less flashy and with less skin showing would be far more fitting.

Good Lord, how utterly embarrassing and how sad that the family of the dead soldier had to put up with that blatant display of disrespect from the First Lady of the United States.
